No information available at this time (Updated 5/22/13).
Steve Montador is still on the road to recovery from a dangerous concussion he suffered last February and has not played in a game this season. His time spent in Rockford will likely be for conditioning as he takes another step to finally playing for the Blackhawks again. (Updated 3/12/13).
Steve Montador missed most of the second half of the 2011-12 season because of a concussion. He skated only once after February 7, but Montador says the concussion is behind him. Like teammate Marian Hossa, he'll have to show us the money in the preseason to get a full picture for him this season. But if he really is healthy, he's good for 20-50-100-100 ... points, PIMs, hits and blocked shots. (Updated 8/14/12)
